I was sexually abused my my mother and older sister and now I find meaningful sexual intimacy nearly impossible.
The long story is that for reasons unknown to me, my mother and older sister used to play "games" with me throughout my late childhood and early teens. This ranged from being randomly naked and suggestive to fondling/forced touching and other stuff like that. Clearly they were both in on it and getting something out of it. This obviously led to a lot of deeply difficult feelings, and it basically made me feel repulsed towards sex with women, possibly as a coping mechanism. I'm still attracted to women, and I seem to attract them, but the problem is, I just can't have sex with them. I can look at them and appreciate them and touch them and I feel good, but, as soon as it comes to penetrative sex, I'm a cold, nervous, driveless wreck. My current gf (soon to be wife) is very very supportive and understands, but it's clear that the lack of sex is driving her crazy, and I'm worried she will cheat.

Is there anything I can do to overcome this? I feel like a complete failure of a man. I've been told that therapy is an expensive waste of time.

>actually get a conversation going
>they seem to actually care
i run out of things to talk about and freeze up once ive exhausted common interests. if i try to let them take the conversation it never really goes anywhere. what the fuck do i do im tired of being alone
>>
>>27374238
>practicing talking to girls
Horrible way to go about it, since it treats women (or really anybody) as a monolith where there can be one-size-fits-all methods that'll work on every single one of them. Successful conversations are done by having them with people you naturally sync up with, not just any random person.
>>
>>27374238
People love to talk about themselves. Try asking them questions about themselves. Once they give you an answer, ask follow up questions.

For example: Do you have any siblings?
Yes I have a brother.
Are you two close?
Yea very close, we like to do “insert activity here”
>>
>>27374271
i know, thats why i try to find people online that i have in stuff in common with rather than messaging random people. the problem is i run out of common ground and dont know where to go from there
>>27374319
>Try asking them questions about themselves. Once they give you an answer, ask follow up questions.
thats usually my go to but some people really wont give you much to work with. i could ask someone what kind of books their into and get "a lot" and id try my hardest to get them to be specific so i have something to go on
>>
>>27374333
You want to work out what a persons niche is and play into that, because they will talk for hours about it. Books are good if the person is a big reader, if reading is just something they do every so often it may be better to find out their niche. Think of the grand final of the world cup, or the superbowl or whatever. You watch it, you talk to your friends and family about it, and then your coworkers, and 2 days later you're tired of having the same conversation about it so you just go "yeah, good match". That's similar with girls since theyve had a million guys ask about generic aspects of their life already, but very few about the projects theyve got going, the inside jokes in the communities their in etc. Working out how to play into a niche is a bit tricky, you might have to go off of their photos or whatever to see their interests, and then find some specific thing about that

>>27374238
>if i try to let them take the conversation it never really goes anywhere.

90% of all the conversations in the world don't "go anywhere." They are self-justifying ways of killing time and expressing friendship.

She should recognize that this behaviour is not beneficial for your relationship. You should have an honest conversation with her about this. She's scared of you leaving her but ironically this will push you to leave her. She should go to therapy if she doesn't already. If she's unwilling to improve there isn't anything you can do and the chances of her issues resolving on its own is not likely.

No, man. Stop being a wimp. The easy road is never the road you really want. Keep pushing until you get what you want, then keep fighting to keep it beautiful. Or just be a lazy cocksucker and drown in the mud I guess...
It's your life, and you shouldn't settle for anything less than what you want. You only live once, and you don't want that to be hell because of your laziness.
>>
>>27375411
If porn has a bad influence on your mental state then don't. It sounds to me you like to get better at socializing. It's hard, but not impossible. Don't take the easy road.

OP here. Even though I have nothing against women theyre insanely stuck up and it's too risky to hit on girls for me. I'm too broke to betabux. I know successful girls that date loser guys though. Even though I grew up middle class I'm white trash as hell. Whatever, it's hard to not get defensive around these BITCHES...

What are some places to actually take / get sex advice from? I have no idea what I am doing and I am a male in my late 20's. I remember asking a friend a long time ago for advice when I was like 17 or 18 and the advice he gave seemed fucked to me. He mentioned stuff like "Women can have orgasms 3 different ways, via their tits, via their vaginas and via their ass." Which to me sounded incorrect but he was one of those people who love to give advice but tends to not really understand what the fuck they advising on. So what I want to know is, just how important is foreplay and for how long should it go on for? I am mostly worried about being a poor lover of sorts. I don't want to be that guy that a woman might make fun of with her friends but I honestly have no idea what I am doing.
>>
>>27376285
The p-in-v part of sex is MUCH more important for men than women. For them, it's the whole packagwe, from first snuggle to afterglow, that makes up "sex." So the simple answer to your question about foreplay is "as long as you are both enjoying it." But don't think of it as foreplay, but as the main part of the adventure, with p-in-v as the dessert. Give her an orgasm or two by hand or mouth before you even think about climbing aboard.

Another point - by now you have had litwerally thousands of self-induced orgasms. As enjoyable as they are, they're a known quantity, with few surprises left. A woman's arousal and climax are infinitely fascinating, and witnessing (and generating) them can be the best part of the whole experience.
>>
>>27376435

Hmm..I see. Yeah I often worry about the whole arousal part because years of porn abuse has made it so I can get erections quickly but I can't maintain them easily I think. Like if there is a lull in sex or something, I am certain I am going to go soft. This whole task is seeming more and more daunting because is the expectation from a man supposed to be that I am hard at all points during the whole "act" of sex?

aw man that sounds hilarious

>>27376502
i actually start mitreating her bc i dont want to tell her she's lame and boring. i generally call her on her BS or defects instead as if it were any better
then when she tells me to fuck off i get butthurt and tell her straight up she's lame and I never had interest in her but for some reason I'm butthurt that she left
i think next time I'll be the one ghosting her. i think this all roots in the fear she will start looking for me everywhere if i dont tell her i dont like her OR that i dont want to hurt her ego out of the blue

I'm thinking of starting a local Harry Potter and Donald Trump fan club, for fans of President Trump, the greatest President ever and of the greatest wizard ever, Harry Potter! I'm just having great difficulties coming up with a name. What do you think of these four names which mix Trump and Harry Potter?

>Donalddor
>Trumpclaw
>Trumperin
>Trumplepuff

Do you have a favorite or do you have any better suggestions? If you were in my area would such a group appeal to you?

For some reason my H212 EVO has this weird electronic burning smell, kind of like one of those things that flattens hair. It's been like this for a few months and I haven't really cared enough to check things out thoroughly because my PC is otherwise normal. My CPU temp is great (41c on load right now) and my other temps are normal too. I'm not 100% sure it's the cooler but when I put my nose close it sure seems like it. Any ideas?

I have been abusing alcohol for some years. I want to quit or at least tone it down.
Physical pain and fatigue is the reason I'm using.

I recently got into Ibuprofen big time. And it seems to be a nice replacement. But it is burning my stomach up...

Anyone have tips on alternatives or other solutions to this? (Legal)...

My husband had success with a mixture of non-alcoholic beer (he really likes Athletic Brewing Co.) and sparkling water. It’s like a placebo- he’s so used to having a drink in hand, so they make a decent replacement. Also when he was having to deal with withdrawals while cutting down he’d slowly water down his drinks more and more over time until the alcohol content was significantly reduced.

I keep having thoughts about dating my underage coworker. She's 3 years younger than me (16) and I know it's really fucking creepy to date a high school junior but my carnal instincts are screaming. I know she's into me too, I just know that my friends would shun me for dating her and I would be seen as a pedophile creep by basically anyone but her.
But also she's a broken girl with daddy issues and one of the best bodies I've ever seen. I fucking hate how society (especially where I live) hardcore judges guys for dating girls 2-3 years younger than them even though girls mature faster and first. I am immature and retarded and she's taking harder classes in high school than I am in college and yet I'm a pedophile for dating her. Kill me.

the age difference between a 16 and 19 year old is utterly consequential

just wait another year until you start dating her 17 and 20 are good numbers
or date her now, but dont make it official
>>
Here in Europe you can even legally date 15 year old even if you are 20 and nobody gives a fuck.

It's just, the one is in high school, the other is probably working.

19 and 16 is normal here. People even do 30 and 16 here.

You're the same type of idiot who sees a picture of 10 people and only 2 of them are black and you call the company racist for not having 50% of it's workers be black. It's literally impossible for every company to have 50% black workers unless we import like a hundred million people from Africa. Black people only make up 13% of the population, so if a company has 13% black employees, that IS equal representation.
